Mourinho denies Man Utd top four claim, refuses to discuss Pogba reports

Premier League Wednesday: Will Manchester United Snap Arsenal’s 19-Match Unbeaten Streak?

José Mourinho refuses to provide United's team news to club TV channel MUTV

Manchester United fielded a makeshift back three in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Southampton, with midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay drafted in alongside Phil Jones - playing his first league game since August.

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.

Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Diogo Dalot - who have made two Premier League starts between them this season - are the only defenders certain to be available to play Unai Emery's side at Old Trafford on Wednesday.


"I think far from a miracle, we just need to not be so unlucky with probably what we have, we need some players to perform better than they are we need to perform better as a team but far from a miracle".

The report goes on to claim that Mourinho does not consider him to be a certain starter in the team, and he is open to allowing Sanchez to leave the club. In the last decade, only Arsenal have recovered from a worse position to finish in the top four after starting the 2012-13 season with 21 points from 14 games.

Any questions on that subject were knocked by Mourinho at a press conference on Tuesday when he was also asked about an interview he had given to Brazilian television in which he had said the team now needed a miracle to reach the top four. "We don't need to waste points where we don't need to waste". Recent reports suggest Jose Mourinho even called him a "virus" after the 2-2 draw with Southampton at the weekend, widening the apparent chasm developing between the star player and egotistical manager.


I've analyzed the betting market for each match and provided three value plays (16-32-1 season record, -4.52 units). Season after season, two of these teams are staying outside the top four. "Valencia is not playing, Shaw is a doubt, Darmian is back but I have to wait and maybe we decide like the last match a couple of hours before the game". Last season, it was Arsenal and Chelsea.

United have many issues under Jose Mourinho but one of the biggest is that the manager appears to have no idea what his best team is.
